London as a Sustainable Fish City?

The University of Greenwich is one of 11 London Universities to sign up to the Sustainable Fish City campaign from Sustain.

The campaign follows on from the London 2012 Olympics stating that they will only buy fish from sustainable sources and Sustain are asking the rest of the city to get on board as well and become the first 'Sustainable Fish City.' The campaign sets out a number of targets to be achieved by 2012 whether you are a university or college, multi-national corporation or just an individual citizen of London there are actions you can take to help London achieve this target.

At the University of Greenwich we have been doing a lot of work to develop a wider variety of sustainable food options and an increase in the amount of sustainable fish supplied is one of the feathers in our sustainable food hat. You can find Marine Stewardship Council certified fish being served on our campuses and it is no secret that Friday fish and chips is the meal most likely to persuade the Sustainability Team down to the canteen!
